What Is The Weight Rating Of The etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock e98880


Hi, what is the maximum weight these Hitch Receiver Locks can handle? e98880 etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2inch Trailer Hitches e98881 etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock - Extra Long - Flush Design for 2-1/2inch Trailer Hitches


Expert Reply:

Trailer Hitch Pins like the etrailer Trailer Hitch Receiver Lock for 2" Hitches - Flush - 2-5/8" Span - Chrome # e98880 and # e98881 you were looking at do not have a specific weight rating due to them being so much stronger than the rest of the components used for towing.

A hitch pins like the # e98880 and # e98881 will still be holding long after the tow bar, ball mount, or trailer hitch receiver has failed.

As an example a rough sheer strength of a similar 5/8" diameter bolt is nearly 90000lbs, so this hitch pin will hold up to anything you can through at it.

I included a video of the # e98880 for you to take a look at.
